See Peace and Light in the Middle East
August 27, 2013
I have used this visualization for peace (below) privately and in small groups, and we have seen blessings come of it. When I first sent it out via email on August 27, war appeared imminent – but it has at least come back from the brink since then.
There is a deep principle in praying for world peace and healing. Swami Kriyananda made pilgrimages to many of the sites where the Heavenly Mother had appeared to children, in which she had asked them to pray for the world, saying that some serious trials could thus be mitigated. It also heals us – for we must focus on the Light and not on fears.
Frank Laubach,* author of Letters of a Modern Mystic, retired in Washington, DC after serving many years in the mission field. He was a Christian mystic who believed that practicing the presence of God would do more good for humanity than political and diplomatic schemes devoid of God. During his retirement, Laubach led a prayer group to pray about national and international concerns. He said, “It is uncanny what can happen when you pray regarding world events, but you have to keep it up every day.”
Years ago, when I first read that quote, I nodded my head in understanding, for I had also seen this “uncanny” response when praying about world events. In that spirit, I ask you to join us in prayers for peace. There are many karmic and geo-political considerations at play, and so there is no easy solution to the troubles in that area, except Light. Other nations strongly oppose intervention, and feel it could lead to greater wars in the region. Hopefully, much of this can be mitigated through prayer. And if war must come, may our prayers help it be as minimal as possible, and also bring comfort and guidance to those who must endure it. No prayer is ever wasted.
“…The only solution for nations—I don’t say for individuals—is to use common sense. The best they can reasonably expect when meeting evil is to control it without adopting its attitudes of anger and hatred…” Swami Kriyananda

Visualize the Meditating Christ, sitting in Light high above the lands of the Middle East.
As the Avatar born in that region, may His Infinite Light Bless All Souls NOW
May this Light bless and comfort the hearts of all those grieving over loss of loved ones.
See rays of this Light reaching down to guide and uplift those in leadership positions in the area. May their decisions be touched by Light, wisdom, compassion and right action.
See these rays also reach out to guide leaders in other nations (including the United States, Russia, China and nations of the European Union) in their policies and actions toward the Middle East. May their decisions be lifted above ego, and be guided by wisdom.
See this Light reaching down into the earth and cleansing the area of ages-old war-torn vibrations. May the Light of Peace shine.
May this Light also shoot up into the heavens to strengthen the forces of Light blessing and guiding our planet NOW. May the forces of Light prevail NOW in any astral battles being fought regarding the Middle East.
May Thy Light of Peace shine in all hearts.
